As it seems I cant upload images to the site i am currently building. I am a magento newbie. when adding a new product in the image tab there is no upload nor browse tab and there's a message "Image type and information need to be specified for each store view." as you can see in the image below.
I've had this problem before. Magento uses Flash to display the
Upload buttons. Go here and click the
Check Now button to check your flash installation or try with a different browser that may have flash properly installed.
First please check to see if the following files are in their proper places:
/skin/adminhtml/default/default/media/uploader.swf /skin/adminhtml/default/default/media/uploaderSingle.swf /skin/adminhtml/default/default/media/editor.swf /skin/adminhtml/default/default/media/flex.swf /app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/media/uploader.phtml /app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/media/editor.phtml
If all of them exist, then I doubt it's your browser, I can see you are using firefox.
Check for the flash player
Your magento root directory should not be password protected using
Hope this helps.
I resolved this issue in 1.9.x using "Dull uploader" which removed the smart flash uploader in favor of a plain browser based file upload.
